Tehran, Iran, Feb. 04 – Iran announced on Saturday that it would “immediately” take steps to resume uranium enrichment and end snap inspection of its nuclear sites after the 35-nation board of governors of the United Nations nuclear watchdog adopted a resolution reporting the Islamic Republic to the Security Council for breaches of its international obligations regarding its suspected nuclear weapons program.

The announcement came minutes after the International Atomic Energy Agency board nations declared their votes.

“Our government is forced to carry out industrial-scale enrichment”, said Javad Vaeidi, a top nuclear negotiator, according to the state-run ISNA news agency.

Vaeidi also said that Iran has to “immediately carry out the law ratified in Majlis to suspend voluntary implementation of the [nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty’s”> Additional Protocol”.

Saturday’s resolution had 27 votes in its favour, three against, with five abstentions.

Cuba, Syria and Venezuela voted against it, while Algeria, Belarus, Indonesia, Libya and South Africa abstained.
